Our new boy kitten is Surfin Tornado who has arrived from Jim & Maggie Horner.

Father Grand Champion Naughtypaws Spartacus and mother Champion Crystalpaws Lilacwine.

Tawny is a beautiful kitten who we hope will grow into a beautiful boy.

His temperament is marvelous and he has settled down well with our other cats although his favourites are Maud’s two kittens and his best friend is Solo.

He will be making his Show debut in the near future and may well be available to friends as a Stud.

The Abyssinian…

“One of the most intelligent animals ever created… a very people-oriented cat. Not a lap cat… but a cat that likes to be with people, a cat that wants to know what you are doing – that wants to help. There is probably no breed anywhere more loyal than the Aby.”
